In keeping with our mission statement, the congregants of BYBS recognize that we have a unique relationship to each other and consider ourselves a caring Jewish community, a kehillat chesed. As a congregational family and spiritual community, we accept the obligation to support our members during challenging times, for example by assisting families experiencing difficult periods of transition in their lives.

Examples of these occasions may include the birth of a child, serious illness, death of a loved one, or becoming a caregiver for a relative or other loved one. Our caring can take the form of a telephone call, providing meals, or a visit, if desired by those needing support.  Please contact the temple office if you need such assistance—or if you wish to offer support to others. You can be certain your concerns will be handled with confidentiality. 
The mitzvah of caring belongs to everyone in the congregation. Remember, any member can attend a shiva or minyan, make a phone call, write a note, visit a housebound person, drop off a meal, or offer a ride. 

As a caring community, we also share the joys of celebrating together at life-cycle events and holidays, and we create bonds with one another through temple involvement.

Hurricane Relief - More Help is Needed

Temple Beth Shalom in San Juan Puerto Rico experienced considerable flooding in their building during Hurricane Maria. Many congregants are also having difficulties and can use our help. we're sure it would be very much appreciated.
The URJ's Camp Newman was destroyed by the fires in Sonoma County, California. There also are about 5 congregations in the area. As soon as we learn of efforts to help, we will let you know.

Thank you for all your help to-date. These disasters have affected many of our fellow congregations and their members.

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago is collecting funds for victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
Go to Hurricane to see how you can help.
